Amateur Art Association of Vojvodina had the honour to host the 11th annual Amateo conference, in Novi Sad, from June In the year when the city of Novi Sad is the European capital of Youth, attendees had the chance to open many questions and to share many good examples. The second day was dedicated to good practice examples, where we heard about different projects from Netherlands, Germany, Serbia, recently initiated Amateo pioneer projects and how two titles European Youth Capital and European Capital of Culture are helping youth from Novi Sad to participate in cultural activities and expand the voluntary service. Last, but not least, there was an interesting workshop where we found out more about our differences, similarities and prejudices. Watch the clip and read the news article here. In the beautiful venue of Vojvodina Government building, while we were watching and listening wonderful music performance, we realised how many different cultures live together in Serbia and the province of Vojvodina.

Strictly speaking, a "professional" is someone who gets paid for their work. Well, not really. I've heard it said that "an amateur is someone who practices until they get it right, but a professional practices until they can't get it wrong. Charlie Parker made mistakes.
Measuring social interaction in music ensembles
Music is an art form and cultural activity whose medium is sound organized in time. General definitions of music include common elements such as pitch which governs melody and harmony , rhythm and its associated concepts tempo , meter , and articulation , dynamics loudness and softness , and the sonic qualities of timbre and texture which are sometimes termed the "color" of a musical sound. Different styles or types of music may emphasize, de-emphasize or omit some of these elements.
Music ensembles are an ideal test-bed for quantitative analysis of social interaction. Music is an inherently social activity, and music ensembles offer a broad variety of scenarios which are particularly suitable for investigation. Small ensembles, such as string quartets, are deemed a significant example of self-managed teams, where all musicians contribute equally to a task. In bigger ensembles, such as orchestras, the relationship between a leader the conductor and a group of followers the musicians clearly emerges. This paper presents an overview of recent research on social interaction in music ensembles with a particular focus on i studies from cognitive neuroscience; and ii studies adopting a computational approach for carrying out automatic quantitative analysis of ensemble music performances.
